This was my first time listening to the show - the Darth Maul: Son of Dathomir series was able to draw me into buying comics for the first time since I was a kid. I'd love to see this material animated or in a feature film!

T'was the weeks before Christmas and all through the house, were piles of Star Wars literature and a lonely Mouse(droid). The comics were read by the chimney with care, in hopes that no pages would tear...

Listen in as they discuss the most rare Star Wars comic in franchise history, let you know what books to be looking for and run down the many magazines you can find on newsstands now, all on the December episode of Jedi Journals!

The Force has indeed awoken. Chris & Jay break the mold and discuss their unfiltered thoughts on the just released Star Wars: The Force Awakens film and compare what we learned in the Journey To The Force Awakens literature to what we saw on the big screen. This is not the typical spoiler-free show, so please note that if you haven't seen the movie yet, you may want to hold off on listening to this episode. Also included is a rundown of the many book titles that were released in conjunction with the film and it's a lot! Listen in to this rare Jedi Journals Microcast as 2015 comes to a close.
